A Samsung Packed Fall Lineup for Boost Mobile: The Samsung Galaxy S II 4G, the Galaxy Rush & the Samsung Array

Tarndeep

Late last week, Samsung and Boost Mobile showed us some new devices from their Fall 2012 lineup. For those of us who find ourselves using a pre-paid, contract-less carrier like Boost Mobile, rather than T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T, our options are usually limited to phones which can be described as mediocre as best. Well, Boost and Samsung have an answer for that with their new lineup.

While the new lineup doesn’t feature a Galaxy S III, which to be honest really isn’t surprising given how much it would cost, features a more than adequate Galaxy S II, in a sexy white or black coat, the Samsung Galaxy Rush, for the mid end/casual smartphone users, and lastly, a good old slider, feature phone in the Samsung Array. You can find the specs to follow. Continue reading

Jammin’ Review: Positive Vibration Headphones by The House of Marley

Tarndeep

Music is everywhere, and it’s a party of everyone’s life nowadays. Unlike the late 80s and early 90s, many people are no longer carrying a loud, disposable battery powered boombox, playing a mix tape their significant other oh so lovingly made for them. Today, for the most part, it’s all about the headphones – it’s hard to go outside nowadays without seeing someone with out headphones on, listening to music. And with this music revolution, you can be sure there are many varieties of headphones, from in earphones to on ear headphones, ranging from prices like $5 – several thousand dollars! But with so many headphones, how can one be sure which pair to purchase – aren’t they all the same, made for the same purpose? Alas, it’s not that easy, and in a way, that’s good because if it wasn’t for me trying out various headphones, I’d never discover the House of Marley headphones. Ever since I’ve seen a demo of them at CES 2012 & started using them, I’m in love, and my music sounds better than before, when I was using a nice pair of Sennheisers. The House of Marley offers a plethora of headphones, with options for many types of listeners, with many different comfort options, and the best part is, unlike many other “high-end” headphone companies, Continue reading

Adam Shear

viagra online“373″ height=”398″ />With the release of Windows 8 coming in the next few months, tablet manufacturers are readying their own Windows 8 tablets to compete in the marketplace.  The tablet PC company Kupa has its users already enjoying Windows 7 while they wait to upgrade to Windows 8.  Kupa’s X11 tablet has been on the marketplace for some time already.  It currently runs Windows 7 Professional, has enough power to smoothly play 1080p HD video with its Intel 1.5 GHz processor, and contains two USB ports and one mini HDMI port.  All this on a tablet with a 10 hour battery life and a screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768.

CES 2012: Samsung Smart Interaction Proves to be the Television of the Future

Adam Shear

One thing that was expected this year at CES was a natural interface for televisions.  A natural interface simply means a way of control that is natural to everyone.  Using the body and voice are of course the most natural inputs we have.  Samsung showed off Smart Interaction which will make its debut later this year on two of Samsung’s LED TVs and one plasma TV as well.  Smart Interaction allows a person to interact with Samsung’s TVs through gesture, voice control, and facial recognition.  This technology may seem familiar for those who own Kinect for Xbox 360, but this is the first time is it being natively added to a TV set.  The video above explains and shows off the concept much better than I can.  LG also showed a TV at CES with similar functions.  Comment below if you think this natural way of control is the way of the future or if you have spotted me in the video (I’m in it for maybe two seconds).  And of course if you have any questions, feel free to also comment below and I will personally answer you (same goes for all our posts).

Here are my thoughts below.

CES 2012: Hands on- Wii U

Adam Shear

cialis online>

Nintendo may have had a home run with the Wii, but many of their hardcore fans demand an all new console with high definition graphics. The Wii U, Nintendo’s next home console, will fill this demand and then some. What’s special about the Wii U is not the HD graphics or current gen console power, it’s the all new controller. The Wii U controller has a 6.2 inch touch screen smack in the middle, similar to a tablet. On the sides and back of the controller lay the buttons one would expect on a game controller such as all of the buttons that can be found on the Wii’s Classic Controller. The only difference is that the analog sticks have been replaced with circle pads. There is a front facing camera on the top for video chat which is surrounded by a Wii sensor bar built into the controller, as well as a microphone at the bottom. Inside the controller is a gyroscope and accelerometer for motion control. As you can see, there are a lot of different sensors in the controller which all work together to deliver gaming experiences that are just not possible on any other gaming system available today. While Nintendo is not exhibiting at CES, they did invite some members of the press, including me, to come to a private suite to try the Wii U out first hand. This is exactly what I did.

CES: Exclusive- Information You Didn’t Hear About Intel’s UltraBook

Adam Shear

Upon sh

aring their vision on the future of computing, Intel showed off this prototype Ultrabook at their CES keynote. It can act like a normal laptop or you can fold it into a slate mode where it works just like a tablet. Even with that full sized keyboard, it is just as thin as today’s tablets. All of this is possible because of Intel’s 2nd generation 22 nm processor known as Ivy Bridge. Although Intel will never sell this specific model, we at TripTronicTech got some exclusive information from a member of Intel’s Ultrabook team about who could. We were told that Intel is not patenting this model and that they have already shared it with various manufacturers. These Ultrabooks could hit the market as early as the end of this year. They are being worked on by various computer manufacturers. We will have to wait and see how this plays out but hopefully these Ultrabooks running Windows 8 will be a reality in the marketplace at that time. Stay tuned to TripTronicTech for more CES coverage.

CES Unveiled Hands On: Case Mate and Boost Case Cases

Adam Shear

A look at the Boot Case charging attachment. This comes with all cases

The second case company I got to check out was Case Mate, one of the most well known case manufacturers out there. They had a plethora of new cases. The first one I was shown was a new line of sweets cases. Cases of cupcakes, lolipops, cake, and more were all on display and look like great cases for girls. There were also jungle themed cases featuring frogs, parrots, and more.

Case Mate also featured rugged cases which come in two parts, a screen protector, followed by rugged back. It felt really good in the hand and I am told that the phone will survive in most accidents, even being run over by a car. In fact, everyone who attended CES Unveiled today got a rugged case courtesy of Case Mate. We will be sure to provide a review for it.

Case Mate and Boost Case had a great lineup of cases and this is only the beginning. Lookout for more CES coverage all this week and early next week

Bloggers, Techies, And Power Hungry Smartphone Users, Look No Further, For Powerbag Is Here!

Tarndeep

Whether I’m at a press conference or at school, I always find myself with a low or dead battery on my smartphone and occasionally, my tablet. I’ve always thought of the idea of having a bag that could recharge my gadgets, but I was never able to find anything that would satisfy my needs, and the only similar product I could find, was on an untrustworthy, China based website. Not to mention that design was ugly, bulky, and weighed a ton. Powerbag however, took all those needs and was able to pack it into a lightweight, stylish offering. Whether you want to use it for business, school, or travel, there’s a bag for you.

There are several different designs you can choose from: Backpacks, Cross-Body/tablet Messenger(s), Sling, and lastly, Brief Cases for the businessmen and women. All these offerings can be checked out on Powerbag’s website. They’ve done a great job at showcasing the features and uses of each bag, full with images, question and answers, and even with explanation about how the technology works!

Some of the important features to note are -

  • Powerbag comes charged and ready to go!
  • Connect up to four (4) mobile devices at a time using the included pre-routed connectors (1 micro, 1 mini, 1 Apple) and one USB port inside every Powerbag; keep devices connected or plug-in when you need more power.
  • The exclusive Powerbag Charging System will automatically detect the connected devices in the bag and send the right amount of power to optimally charge each one.
  • To recharge Powerbag, plug into any standard wall outlet with the included AC Adapter.  Powerbag comes with a built-in, lightweight, rechargeable and removable battery to get you through your day (available with a 3000 mAh or 6000 mAh battery based on model).
  • When plugged in, Powerbag will charge all connected devices first and then charge its own battery.

We got a unit of the Instant Messenger  and we’ll have a review of it soon. I’m going to turn this into my primary work bag, so you can expect a thorough review!
